Ex-teammate: Kirk Cousins is 'weakest part' of Vikings offense

Ex-teammate: Kirk Cousins is 'weakest part' of Vikings offense

Ahead of the Minnesota Vikings' matchup with the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, Eagles linebacker Zach Brown took his old teammate to task.

Cousins signed a fully guaranteed $84-million deal with the Vikings last season - a record at that point.

"I realized when I was in Washington he was kind of careless with the ball", Brown said.

"This team is a team that's going to come and attack you defensively", coach Mike Zimmer said.

Brown isn't wrong - but it's interesting to see him lean into his Redskins days to throw out some hits here. Cousins threw 27 touchdown passes to 13 interceptions with seven fumbles that season as Washington finished 7-9. "That's my viewpoint on him", Brown said.

Justified or not, though, Brown's remarks could easily come back to bite him once Cousins gets a taste of a banged-up Eagles secondary, which is down several starters due to injury and ranks among the worst in the National Football League in terms of passing yards allowed per game. And Brown was the guy a year ago whose comments had him in hot water before the cut this summer. "First we have to stop the run, and then make him frustrated back there". They enter Sunday's game ranked third in rushing (166 yards per game) compared to 29th in passing (191 YPG). So it might be that he thinks little of Washington more than he thinks little of Cousins.

Gedeon has missed time this season with a groin injury, but played in last week's game against the New York Giants.
